Retreading, recycles used tires in which the carcass (the media), remained healthy and retained its full potential. The tread and sidewalls are replaced following a specific industrial technology to give them a new life without compromising their safety and effectiveness.
The retreading technique is very common in demanding sectors such as civil aviation and heavy trucks. Currently, in the European market of replacement tire near a heavy truck tire in three is a retread.
At a time where environmental issues are a priority, the retread, with 90% recycled content, is positioned as a future solution. Retreading a tire, can not only extend its life, but also significantly reduce the consumption of energy, resources (petroleum and derivatives) and CO2 emissions during the manufacturing process.
